Second best thing, after the big New Year's Banquet has to be the three other New Year's receptions taking place the following days. For the Queen and the Crown Prince couple the day began with a reception for Justices, The Royal Guard and the regiments Officer Corps taking place at Christian VIIs palace, Amalienborg -the same palace where the big Banquet were celebrated.

I have commented on her beautiful outfit further down in the post.

Unlike previous, we got plenty of pictures from the second reception taking place at Christiansborg castle -the same place as for the Danish Parliament. It was around noon, 11:30 pm local time, the Queen and the Crown Prince couple arrived, here, to attend a reception for the diplomacy. Special invited guests from 75 different nations participated. The three royal family members arrived last and before before the reception began, each and everyone were welcomed with a handshake given by Margrethe, Frederik and Mary. This little ceremony was followed by a speech given by H.E. Ms Mina Marie Baldé Laurent. She is ambassador of the Ivory Coast. As the longest serving ambassador is she in charge of the speech on behalf of diplomacy. Queen Margrethe also gave a speech, thanking Ms Laurent and the diplomancy.


With more than 75 nationalities from all over the world gathered at one reception, we get a unique opportunity to see clothes in all colours and patterns. Something that makes this event more than special. Indeed we saw some amazing national costumes! Because the Queen loves coloured clothes this much, I imagine she was impressed by the variety or colour combinations and patterns. Not quite as colourful, yet absolutely stunning, we have Crown Princess Mary in her grey gown. And wauw! First thing that hit me was the magnificent waist line. Such an innovative way to create a gown never seen before. I simply love the way two different materials matched each other in this one dress. Maybe you even recognize this Julie Fagerholt creation? Because actually it is a reused gown, worn by Mary at several previously occasions in 2008, 20102012 and 2013. But at that time it was a two-piece evening gown -jacket and a the dress. This time she wore it without the jacket. And as you see on the old pictures the top has now been changes and I really fancy "the new look". Perfectly matching the floor-length gown she embrace the style by wearing suede Gianvito Rossi pumps, a grey Hugo Boss clutch and earrings from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. Incredibly beautiful! For hours I could comment on this look, but I will leave it to you. 

What do you think? Are you as impressed as I am?
